Tall Haunted House Box

 Can you believe it is October??!!!  I am so far behind on everything!  Just when you think you might catch up something else is thrown at you...LIFE.
Anyway this fun little Haunted House Box is new from SVG Cutting Files and will be in the store on Friday.  I am loving this box it is so cute and really simple to put together.  For this one I embossed the box base with a brick folder and the shingles with a spider and spider web folder.  The ghost and tag are dies.  If you go the the last picture you can see the box done just plain, it is still really cute just not all the add ons.

Fall Mini Album

Hi friends, so sorry I haven't been around much lately.  I have been with family.  The past few weeks I have been going out of state at least once a week to see my dad who was not doing well.  He passed away a couple of weeks ago.  I miss him but he is no longer in pain so that is a blessing.

Anyway on to something lighter and fun!  I am really loving mini albums for some reason...I don't know why...I don't put photos in them.  I know I am a bit crazy.
This album is 5.5" x 6.5" and the spine is 2.5".  The paper is Fall is in the Air by Echo Park.
Ginger over at My Sisters Scrapper was my inspiration for this.





The tags were made with the cut a parts

Chap Stick Holders


So we were going to my daughters for Labor day weekend and on Friday afternoon she called and said "So could you make me something with these sayings to hold chap stick and bring with you?  I have to teach the young women and Sunday and there are 24 of them."  We were leaving very early Saturday morning to go to her house.  Well being the good mother that I am...this is what I made for her.  There are 2 different designs both from Lori Whitlock. For the  sentiments I did a print and cut.

Love you to the Moon and back card

 Today is our 40th wedding anniversary...I remember when I turned 40 and thought I was old!  Now I have been married for 40 years.  I am so thankful for my sweet husband he is truly the best thing that ever happened to me.  He encourages and supports me in everything I do, he is my biggest fan.  He is my best friend, my sounding board, my lover, he is my all.  

This is the card I made for him.  We have always said this to our kids and grandkids and they to us, so I thought it was the perfect saying for him today.  This cute file is from SVG Cuts.

Jar Easel Card

I can't believe that August is coming to an end!  Where has the time gone?  Did any of you watch the eclipse?  We drove to Idaho to see it in totality.  It was so amazing.  The traffic was not!!
This fun watering can easel card is from the Floral Shop cut set from Lettering Delights.  So super quick and easy to make.  I was having the hardest time getting photos of this...either it was to sunny or not sunny enough and shadows and wind...so this is the best I could do today.

I Moose You Card


I am having so much fun making this hybrid cards.  The backgrounds are printed and the image is paper pieced.  These images are from Don't feed the bears cut set from Lettering Delights.  I put the moose on some foam tape for added dimension.  This card is 4 x 4 so rather small but you could make it any size you wanted.  I got the idea for this from Jin over at Under a Cherry Tree.

Fabulous Mini Album


So I have always loved mini albums not sure why...I never put photos in them...I just love them though.  So I have been on a kick making them so stay tuned to see a bunch of them.
This was a really fun album to make and pretty easy it only has 5 pages but each page has like 3 pages on it, if that makes sense.  It measures 4.5" x 6.25".  The paper is the Fabulous collection from Authentique.  I saw this on Ginger's blog My Sisters Scrapper she is amazing at mini albums.

You can click on the images to make them bigger.

Front cover


side and back






first page, flip out has a magnet in it to hold it down

each page has one pull out on the side all the same, the pockets have the cut aparts in them


















The little file folder was a sticker on the sticker sheet I put it on black paper and hand cut around it.  The other file sticker was stuck down and the framed one put on top with a magnet for a flip down.

The last  page has a waterfall feature and has a magnet to keep it in place.
